25. OK, let's assume then that we are not "in favor of humanitarian values."
Edited on Sun Mar-20-11 12:19 AM by BzaDem
How is that an argument against intervening in Libya? If there is a valid humanitarian reason, but that isn't the "real reason" we are going, shouldn't we still intervene? In other words, why is it a bad thing to intervene for the wrong reason when there also exists a completely valid reason?

Or do you think there is no valid humanitarian reason whatsoever (independent of the possible bad motives of the government)?
